Singapore-based subsea vessel operator Ultra Deep Solutions has exercised an option at China Merchants Heavy Industries for a dive support construction vessel.

The Kadinsky is the sister vessel to Ultradeep Matisse, which is under construction at the yard and scheduled for delivery in 2019.

UDS did not reveal a delivery date for this new vessel, which is suitable for a well intervention tower and flex lay tower.

Shel Hutton, CEO of Ultra Deep Solutions, commented: “Exercising the option of the sister vessel fits into our future plans for long term decommissioning. We see the industry in a 30-year cycle which will be removing many structures over this term. Our plans remain the same to build high efficiency vessels at a competitive price. Technology will be a driving force over the next decade. Capturing the market in these area’s will be a key to our success.”

Ultra Deep Solutions has a fleet of six DSCVs including those under construction.
